Simple and effective.

Finding the perfect backpacking pack doesn't have to be a time-consuming headache—just look to the fully-adjustable, intuitively-designed Mountainsmith Women's Lariat 55 Backpack. This multi-day backpack sports a comfortable women-specific fit and a plethora of features to make it easy to live out of, whether you're hiking the PCT or wandering across Europe.

Multi-point ladder adjustment suspension lets you easily dial in the perfect fit, and the PE framesheet with X-configuration aluminum stays and horizontal stabilizer bar comfortably support heavy loads when you're carrying your life on your back. The roll-top closure adds versatility, as you can pack it with a full load or go lighter without having a ton of wasted space. Meanwhile, a convenient U-shaped zipper offers easy access during urban travels. And when you want to take a day trip to a nearby peak or explore the city, the outer pack doubles as a detachable daypack, complete with shoulder straps.

Cordura fabrics ensure lightweight durability that will help the pack last for years to come. The EVA back panel offers a cushy feel and it's ridged for enhanced breathability and reduced weight. Compression straps help you manage your load so it doesn't throw you off balance when you're crossing a sketchy ridge. Other features to help you feel at home on the trail include smartphone-sized waistbelt pockets, external lash points, 3M reflective cord, and a side-canted water bottle pocket.
